The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

November 16 – Keep Playing Soccer – Futsal

November 16, 2014

Futsal is an excellent opportunity to improve your soccer skills, get in a bit of fitness and have some fun on Sunday afternoons. Without question, those who play in the off-season are those who improve in the off-season. At one quick hour – futsal is also a great opportunity for those playing other sports to get in a weekly bit of soccer.

Futsal – Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 4:00pm in the Norwich/Marion Cross School gym (entrance it to the rear right of the school). Wear flats or other non-marking sneakers and  bring water and a grey shirt – just like real soccer. Watt Alexander runs the program – and has been officially blessed with coach’s seal of approval.

All HHS players are welcome. Be there – play futsal – have fun!
